State NRM Program grants
The State Natural Resource Management (NRM) Program is a Western Australian Government initiative providing funding to protect and conserve WA's environment and natural resources.
Two types of grant are available.
Community grants provide funding for on-ground community-based projects that conserve, restore, rehabilitate or enhance the environment. Catchment and community groups, industry groups, not for profit organisations, local government authorities and schools are eligible.
Strategic priority project grants are for larger scale, strategic projects that address specified WA government priorities. This funding is made available to a broad range of government and non-government organisations.
More than $67 million has been committed to grants since the Program's inception in 2009, supporting over 430 different projects delivered by more than 220 groups.
These projects have achieved impressive results in their local environments.
